Jn3go Ferguson Bustalna Objections to Form
of Ballot Adopted by Him.

In Judge. Ferguson's equity division several
lawyers devoted tlio whole of the forenoon
"session " lo arguingIho question of how the
names ol certain political candidates should
appear upon the official ballot to bo used at
the poll * nett Tuesday.
When the regularly nominated candidate *
for the legislature on the populist tlckel re
signed , Michael Nelson , Avery A. Perry nnd
Augustus Payne were nut .up by pcllllon and
Invlled to run In the race. On ( ho official
ballot they have been branded as "People's
Independent , " a name to which exceptions
are taken by some of ( ho members of the
rank and file of the party , they maintaining
that IhU lllle Is misleading and that Ihey
have no right to bo designated as candidates
of the party which did not place them before
tha public. In this same category Iho name
of George P. Wlttum appears n the people' *
party candidate for county attorney , when as
a matter of fact the regular nominee of the
convention refused to run and Wlttum was
nomlnited by pclftlon , nnd by petition only.
The populists contend that these men should
BO upon the ticket ns Independents and wllh-
out the title of people's being added.
After hearing all of the arguments Judge
Ferguson withheld his decision until 4 o'clock
In the afternoon.
IJeforo the adjournment of the afternoon
Beaolon of Ihe court Judgff Ferguson passed
upon the case , granting Ihe mandamus au
prayal for by Elmer B. Thomas and the other
members of the central committee of the
popullat committee. Instructing the county
clerk to designate all of the petition can
didates as "people's Independent , by peti
tion" Instead of simply "people's Independ
ent. " . . ,
In passing upon the case Judge Ferguson
reviewed the Issues nnd then said that none
of the men were nominated by any conven
tion assembled , and that thcro was no com
mittee thai l.ad Ihe authority to fill va
cancies which might be upon the ticket. He
said that It had been contended that the
rights of the people were superior lo Ihe
rights of the convention , "but that , " ho con
tinued , "I cannot view In ( hat way. The
people have a right to make nominations
by petition , but have they the right to des
ignate and say that the nominees by peti
tion shall be Ihe nominees of the people's ,
the democratic or the republican party. I say
not. unless they designate thai such nominees
are nominees bypetition. . Any other course
would be a. fraud ; It would be wrong and It
would be unjust. The mandamus in this
case will Issue , and the county clerk will
' place none of these names upon the odlclal
'bn.llotij unless he does eo by 'designating
them as people's independent , by pellllon.
It would bo a fraud upon Ihe volcrs of Ihls
county and district to create the Impression
thai George F. Wltlum nnd the other parties
mentioned In this action were candidates
of thepeople's party , when , us a fact , they
are not. "
Wltlum , the petition candidate for county
attorney , was considerably exercised by the
decisionnf the court , nnd. letting his pas-
slpns get the better of his judgment , he
arose In his teat and said that ho did
n'opropoy. \ . ! to have any Judge or Jury des-
lffnatie lie party name that should follow
hla name upon the oHIcial ballots which were
to be voted on election day. In his usual
mild way. Judge Ferguson replied : "This
la the decision of the court , nnd It stands
until It Is , 'rcversed by the supreme COUrt
0f the state. "
- At the afternoon session of the court W. S ,
-Shoemaker Appeared In the equity division
before Judge. Ferguson with what has been
aaslgnated as his "brackel "
case. a suit
which bobbed Inlo
prominence at an early
hour yesterday. This case- takes Into

In closing his remarks Mr *

to defraud the voters out of the right to

The other end of the fight , the ono which ,
MM In opposition to the placing of brackets

, waa
championed by Charles J.
Greene , the Bur

In pasting upon the case Judge Ferguson
laid that as ha viewed the iltuatlon them
was purely a legal question to be considered.
He had no feeling in Ihe mailer and could
say -without hesitancy that howas Ireo from
political , or other bias. The law as passed
by the legislature had a rntttnlng , and It
was apparent that the Intention was to have
every party and principle fairly and hon
estly represented. There was no such party
n ( ho "Democrat-Peoples' Independent. "
This was a case where Uio nomination had

sembled , and thai being n fact , each of those

Mailers political held full sway In both
divisions of the equity court yesterday , and
bolh of Ihe- court rooms were crowded to
suffocation ,
In the division presided over by Judge
Keysor there was a clash between Ihe re
publican stale central committee and the
World-Herald Publishing company , the re
sult of which was that In the end the com
mittee walked away with the baggage , and
from this time on until election day the
paper down the street , under the order or
the court , will continue to publish two col
umns each day of matter contributed by ( he
scribblers who are working the republican
news bureau.
The hlslory of the case Is known. The
World-Herald entered Into
company con
tract , agreeing to sell the space and receive
175 per day. ' Under this contract the
matter was printed for a ddy or two , after
whlcli- the proprietor of the sheet threw up
the Job and the two columns were used for
the "publication of general news matter.tufl
Itlght after that the committee appeared In
court nnd asked for an order compelling the
World-Herald to carry out the terms of Its
agreement , the case being set for bearing
thla morning.
In opening for the committee the attorney
who was looking after that end ot the fight
contended that the making of the contract
was a business affair for the sale ot a cer
tain amount of space , the same as any other
contract between a newspaper publisher and
an advertiser. This being true , there had
been a willful violation of a valuable con
tract , the damage of which could not be
measured. The power of the court , the
attorney contended , was sufficient to compel
the performance of the contract , and there
was no Justification for the breach -which
had taken place. Law was cited to show
that a contract once entered Into could not
be broken as tne fancy of either party might
dictate , but Instead there must be a good
and sufficient reason for the action.
Attorneys for the World-Herald urged that
the gentlemen bringing the action were not
entitled to a standing In a court of equity.
The contract had been entered Into with the
republican central committee , an organiza
tion that was not n partnership , and an
oiginlzatlon that was not Incorporated under
tlic laws of the state. Such being- true , from
a legal standpoint. It was a nonentity , hav
ing no right to sup or bo sued. The mem-
btrs of the committee were not In court
in their own behalf , but were representing a
thing that had no legal existence. It was
contended ttat In the event that the other
parties had violated the contract the World-
Herald would have been -without a remedy ,
as there would have been no one who could
have been sued , ns the gentlemen pretended
to represent something that In law did not
efclal. There was no allegation to show that
the pctltlonets. wereto be damaged by the
failure ot the paper to live up to the terms
of thp agreement and. the Injunction was
corrmandlng the publisher of the paper to do
an act that was void , as the order was
Issued after the publication had ceased. It
was argued that If the matter was not , pub
lished In the World-Herald It could be pub
lished In other papers , so that the petitioners
would not be deprived of the means of circu
lating their matter. There were no property
Interests at stake snd consequently the
plaintiffs could not suffer any damages.
In passing upon the Issues Judge Keysor
contended that the court was bound to take
notice of the fact that political parties did
exist and that they transacted their busi
ness through committees , These committees ,
wh'llo they -were not partnerships and while
they were not Incorporated companies , had
the authority to expend money and manage
the campaigns In the Interests of the party
candidates. The contract with the World-
Herald was made In good faith and could not
bo violated so long as there was no showIng -
Ing that It should bo discontinued. It was
a contract that was made for a good and
Valuable consideration and could not bo
broken at will ,
The finding of the court was to the effect
that the temporary order would continue In
foice , the paper being compelled to publish
the matter furnlahcd by the committee.
Attorneys for the World-Herald wanted to
know what was to be done In the event that
the matter furnished was libelous , to which
the court replied that that was a bridge
which was to be. crossed when Itwas reached.
At any time when the publisher of the
paper should conclude that the matter Bent
In by the committee was of a llbeloua
nature , that was a thing that could be
settled by calling upon the court.
UK.viti ) jior.cu.nn LAST NIGHT.
Sixth n ml Tlilril Ward Voters l.tsteti to the
Pnnplo'ii Candidate * .
Several hundred voters of the Sixth ward
wore gathered together last night In a hall
at 11WA North Twenty-fourlti street to lis
ten to Judge Holcomi ) nnd 'Mr. E , Uosewater.
The audience applauded often.
Judge Ilolcomb confined his speech to an
outline of ( he present campaign In Nebraska.
He raid thai on the ono eld-e were the rail
roads and corporations of the state , and on
the other the mass of the people , who were
supporting him. The business men had
banded themselves together and formed the
Huslne.38 Men's association. They bad set up
a standard for themselves , and were calling
upon ' .Jho pcoplo tp yoe according to. , this
nta'iiJard. Some of
ths corporations were
forcing their employes ta vote the ticket
they were supporting , by threatening them ?
wl li the lost s > t their '
Jobs..But , the speaker ;
continued , . If voters would consider that this !
was a struggle between corporations and
the mass of-the people , and then vote con
scientiously , he would bo elected by 15,000 or
20,000 majority.
After the conclusion of ! lib speech Judge
Ilolcomb shook hands w th the audlencs. Mr.
Kojewater was called upon for a speech and
responded. Mr. Hosowater "
elated thai howas
a republican. He said
that he had
4 Iliad
ported sfrven republican governors who had
been elected , but he could not support the :
preent republican nominee , who wa-s being
presented to the people by the corporations
of the .state. The speaker reviewed the a
Infamous " methods before and 'during the
state- convention which had resulted In the
nomination of Majors , anil made a few re
marks about hU record. Now , he con
tinued , J& tli a time to gel the republican ma
chine out of the hands of the corporations
by a crushing defeat.
After the. speeches were concluded Ihe
speakers proceeded to a meeting In the

Itcpubltcanlsm was ambitious In Omaha
last night , the two central places of "at-
traction being Exposition hall and Erfllng's
hall , where ( ho speakers ot the evening
held the boards ,
lloth auditoriums were filled with ladles
and genllcmen. The principal meeting ,
however , was at Exposition hall , where John
L. Webster spoke , while John M. Thurston
waa speaking at Crtllng' * . . hall , nf.ter , .which
they both changed places , and the oratory
went on undisturbed , "
When Introduced by Chairman Wharton
at Exposition hall , Mr. Webster said that he
waa out on the stump In the Interest of the
republican tlckel of Iho state. Two years
ago the democrats secured control of both
houses of congress , and ever slnco that
day the country had taken on a gloomy as
pect. There had been great strikes , business
depression and many failures. Worthy men
were out of employment , and the- great soup
houses had become democratic dining halls.
Slnco the republicans had gone out of power
the condition of the country had been "hell
up to date. "
Speaking of W. J. Ilryan. Mr. Webster said
that ho had stolen the democratic platform
nnd had turned U over to Iho populists ,
though tha straight democrats were going
lo ' vote ( the republican ticket Ihls fall. The
speaker tald that bo had some sympathy for
Tobe Castor. Euclid Martin , J. Sterling
Morton and democrats of their Ilk , as Bryan
had stolen their party ana had traded
It off ' for a senatorial boom. Mr.
Bryan's free silver Ideas were at
tacked , the speaker maintaining that If
the country had free and unllmlled coinage
of silver. It would mean cheap labor and
hard llmos , with gold going lo a premium ,
aa U did during Iho war of the rebellion.
City treasuries would becotnu empty and
railways and other corporations would be
come bankrupt and go Into the hands of
receivers ; It would mean a financial panic
such as the world never know.
Discussing the tariff question , Mr. Web
ster showed the Inconsistencies of the Wil
son bill , arguing the serious effect Its' passage -
sago had upon the country closing up the
factories and bringing general disaster.
The change of the tariff on sugar' had
levied upon the people of Nebraska a tax of
$1,440,000 per annum , all for 'the benefit of
the Sugar trust , which amount might much
betler have been given lo the poor of Ihe
state to keep them from starving. In re
ducing expenses , the democrats had pro
ceeded on a certain line , that of taking
away the- pensions from the old soldiers , an
amount which aggregated $28,000,000 , and
this In the most prosperous country on the
face of the earth.
At Uils point Mr. Thurston arrived , and
as ho walked up the nlsle of the hall he was
loudly cheered. This cheer continued until 1
he stepped upon the platform.
Mr. Thurston was Introduced by Chairman
Martin ns the next senator from Nebraska.
Mr. Thurston said thai he had just returned
from a campaigning tour , during which ho
had spoken In fifty counties and had met
more than one-half ot Iho people of thentate.
From what ho had seen , ho was of the opin
ion that the republican ticket wouM be
elected. Including six representatives In con
gress anil the entire legislature. Two , years
ago. Mr. Thurston said , In this cquntry
every willing man could flnd. ' employment ,
while today at ) least 2,000.000 men In the
country were- wandering : up and dowi/.iho
land seeking labor and finding Itnot. , Today
there were X0,000,000 persons' who were
rapidly becoming paupers. These could b $
supported In two ways , ona by opening to
them the doors of the poor houses nnd the
other by opening the doors of manu
facturing establishments , which would
ting sweet American music. Protection ) , he
said , opened the- doors of American Indus
tries , while free trade opened the doors of
the American poor houses. In all of the
years of the republican party's power there
was not a man from a foreign land whd did
not flnd a place to work ; tliero was not an
American factory permanently closed and
shut down. H was apparenl that God Al
mighty knew what party he could trust In
America. Every strike In 1892 was by labor
demanding bolter wages , and In almost every
Instance the advance was made , but today ,
with 3.000,000 men out of work , no man's
place was secure , as there were plenty of
good men who would underbid for the chance
to bo employed. , Two years ago there were
2,000,000 men making articles to be transported
anul sold , but toda'y 2,000,000 men were idle ,
the result of which was thai train crews
had been laid off , section men had been dis
charged , and there had been a reduction
all alqnR the line.
The United States could compete wlth >
England In the manufacture of any-article
known , and lhat was why Great Britain op
posed the McIClnley bill.
Upon the senatorial question , Mr. Thurston
said lhal the nexj senator from Nebraska
would not be a soft shelled democrat not a
hard shelled pop. but he would be ( ' 'Thurs-
lon. " ) cried the audience In overloud voice , a
man who represented the people nnd nould
not have to lake fourteen hours In order to
let the world know he' was there.
Since the last Joint debate , Mr. Thurston
said lhat he had felt that
ru > wished be was
dead. At lhat time he said thai \V. asJ.
Bryan's female J.on
assistant was upon
the stage describing the personal appearance
of Mr. Bryan , who had the ambrosial locks. "
The lady , Mr. Thurston said , described Mr.
Bryan as a man with "tho front of Jove , "
but how she knew he
, could not Imagine as
she was looking at Mr Bryan from the
rear. ( Applause. ) Mr. Thurston declared that
If ho wenl lo Washington as a senator he
would not go there riding , two hordes. There
never was a day when the republicans were
In power that a man could not sell a dollar's
worth ot property for 100 cents , but then a
man could not get-something for nothing.
This country was large enough to , take ,
care of every ounce ofsilver that It had In
Its possession , bul before being coined. Mr.
Thurston Eatil lhat he woiild have that
dollar Just as good as any dollar on earth.
The free silver people say , "let's open up
the mines to nil the" world. " This mean ) ,
said Mr- . , Thurstonthat / /100 / .cents .of
labor or 100 ccnta worlti "of wheat" for fifty (
cents worth of foreign-silver. -
Two years ago the democrats said : "Turn
the ropubll < yms out ami the price ot wheat
will go up , " bul It went down ; two years ago i
the democrats said : "Turn the republicans
out and Iho factories will opqn. " but they
closed. Two years ago HIP democrats Bald :
"Turn the republicans out and the country
will boom , " but It burstcd.
Republican victory could , no more -.bo
stopped this fall than Niagara Falls could
ba dammed up with mosquitoes. It was
republican year , and there waa going tote
be victory all along Ihe line. In order to
have the country thrive and. .prosper toU
was necessary to have the co-operation of
the west and the great seaboard of the
cast. Nebraska put one- star Into , the
azure blue of the American flag and New
York another , but when they got In "there
they helped to form one flag.
Three weeks ago Mr. Wilton , the author
the Wilson bill , was banqueted tn Lon
don , but William McKlnley recelvftl his ot
ovation from the people of his
own country , Mr. Wilson had received
ceived two great ovations In hU
life , the flrttwhen the bill passed the houee.
The day -when the. vote was. taken bla
colleagues gathered around him and raised
him bodily upon their uhauWef ; ; flnd , amid
the shouts , carried him from the chamber ,
but Impartial history recorded tho-fact that
W. J. Itryau carried out one of the hlnq

ucl.d Martln.hU. small democratic cotitluREM
gant and IheWeOubllean workers for Tom
Majors . . . hehl n Joint secret meeting tonight
at the LlncolijbDtel. | TJje conclave had ev-
Idcntly ' been , called together by a precon-
ccriei ' signal. , A Macedonian cry had gone
out from republican hj-ajJquarters for nld
from the democratfc pdrty. Al 7 o'clock Ihe
rotunda of tlu Lincoln was dotted with
Omaha ] and Lincoln "administration demo
craS . " This unusual sight caused consider
able comment , but this was explained shortly
after S o'clock , when the entire combination
disappeared Into a small room on the ground
floor of the hotel and. .prpceeded lo unbottle
Ihe oratory. Aside froni seven or eight fiery
speeches the assembly appeared to bo all at
sea. Nothing definite was decided upon an-3
no resolutions passed. It was expected that
some kind of a political roorback would , be
hatched , but nothing of the sort transpired.
Among the democrats present were Leo
Spratlln , Euclid Marlltl , George H. Halncs ,
Charles U. Connoyer.snd S. R. Hush , from
Omaha ; A. J. Sawyer. Captain Russell and
T. M. Marquette pf the II. & M. from Lin
coln ; Mayor Stewart of Ulalr , and J. H.
Ager , Frank White and J. W. Crawford ,
The speeches made were all of ono burden ,
an urgent solicitation to democrats to work
hard for Cnmlld"ato Sturdevant all day on
November 6 next.
It was explained1 that Nebraska democrats
must make a showing for the benefit of
Washington critics. W. J. Bryan was
vigorously denounced by nearly every
speaker. This evoked enthusiastic applause
from the republicans , but was greeted with
grim sllenco by the democrats. Candidates
for- the legislature on the Independent tlckcl
came In for rather mild treatment and the
sentiment of the meeting aposarcd to be
kindly toward lliem. Euclid Martin was Ihe
king pin of the event and his friendly hob
nobbing wfth tlio republicans was a new
nnd Interesting element In Nebraska
politics. Altogether the results of this'
meeting were decidedly tame. No particular
objccl seemed lo have- been accomplished , ex
cept to pledge Hie few stray dmocrals pres
ent to vote for Tom Majors on election day.
This pledge was given " with a will that
smacked strongly of "typical Boreheadlsm.

It cannot collect Its .taxes without allowing

Senator William Allen"addressed
V. addressed a
largo audience nt Bauer's lull. South Omaha ,
last nlBhl ,
He flrsl spoke of the unfortitnalo condition
of the country In so far an the laboring man
was concerned. A few years ago , ho said ,
such an Individual as. a. tramp or an Indi
vidual In search of bread WHS unknown.
At the close ot the war tlio per capita was
about $52 , Since- that ( line the volume
ot money hod been gradually decreased until
It was now ridiculously low , the per
capita being but $23 , This did not
mean that there nas $23 In circulation for
each man , woman and child In the country ,
for at least one-third of this amount was held
In bank reserves. The actual circulation was
about $8 per capita. Only three weeks ago
wheat reached the lowest value In the hls-
tory of the countrjHe said the laboring
man and the farmer had Interests In common
The enforced Idleness ot so many men In the
last year was produced by the
withdrawal ot nineteen millions of del
lars of the people's money , which was
called In by the government and
destroyed. This fact naturally caused
prices to fall , and nil a result lliouiamls ot
People were thrown out of employment. A
few , years ago the people sneered at the
"hayseeds'1 when they began holding meet-
Ings. They Bald the farmers knew how to
ralso corn and hogs , but they did not have
sufficient , brain to conduct thu business of
a nation. . The speaker predicted thai In a
few years the populists would-poll a vote of
at least 3,000,000. The populists were/ not
opposed to legitimate corporations. o long
as Ihe corporations lived up to the laws of
politics they were all right , and would not
be opposed by-Ills parly.
Senator Allen spoke of the reverses and
later of Ihe upbuilding of the French re
public , until now the pcrcaplta of thai na
tion was $48.
What this country demanded , according to
the liopul.st. 1-dea , was a general renovation
of tSi management of affairs.
Senator Allen" then discussed the sliver
question. ; Insisting on the populist solution ot
It. He devgted flfteennllnutes to roasting
the McKlnlcybill. . Under high protective
tariff there had 'been more strikes , more
suffering ahd Svnnt than during any
year In the history bf the country. What the
populists wanted was legislation so that nil
met and women might stand on ah equality
before the lnvi. Under the system of protec
tlor a certain Individual , who only a fc\v
years ago was a telegraph operator , was
worth $30,000,000 and Is over In a foreign
country ; drinking champagne and playing bac
carat ; with the prince of Wales. Sir George
Pullman also came In for a good trouncing.
When Senator Allen referred to the Income
tax law he said It was upon the motion nnd
vote of populist members that the law was
Great changes hacTtakeri place In the coun
try. The patty of Lincoln 'la 18(51 ( has be
came , lti the stale of Nebraska lnlS94 the
party of Charley Mosher.
At the conclusion of his remarks , Senator
Allen was heartily applauded.
Chairman Bell made a. few remarks , ex
plaining that tha alleged populist ticket , gal
lon up by Ihe D. & M , company , was no
worthy the suppprt qf the populists , ar.d hi
recommended that -Ilia , populists vote for the
democratic ' nominees off tile county ticket.
Judge. Holcomb.who arrived late , made a
few remarks. ' Tld said It was the thlrt
meeting he had addressed last nlghl and he
was tired out. He said-ho believed that he
was In the right In this campaign and was
on Ihe side of the majority of the people
He Would rather be right than bo governor
but this fall he believed tha
ho would be "both. He asked tha
If there was anything detrlrnenta
lo the state on the platform on which h
stood he wanted his opponents to come fortl
nnd name It. Ho knew that the corporation
were threatening their employes and nr
gulng calamity and ruin in case ho shoul
be electeil , but ho believed the men on elec
tlon day would go lo the polls and vol
their honest convictions ,
The speaker was repeatedly Interrupted b ;
hearty applause.
